Why Does Nobody Help Me When I Ask? - Video Presentation by Daniel López

If you were among a group of people during an emergency, would you feel compelled to intervene and help the victim? Social psychologists John M. Darley and Bibb Latané popularized the bystander effect after becoming interested in the topic following the murder of Kitty Genovese in 1964.

Why does learning about the bystander effect matter? If you're in an emergency situation, it's important to recognize the signs. It can also occur when there is no danger and the effects are usually stronger the less dangerous the situation appears to be. The bystander effect is easy to counter just by making people aware that it's happening.

During his presentation, Full-Stack Developer Daniel López covers which factors impact the bystander effect, the bystander intervention model, and underlying explanations and what to do about them. Daniel also goes through a bystander effect experiment and provides real-life examples.
